Who needs the Rock when you’ve got Tiffany Haddish? After pairing with Dwayne Johnson in the smashes “Central Intelligence” and “Jumanji:
Welcome to the Jungle,” Kevin Hart is teaming up with another star, Ms. Haddish, in the forthcoming comedy “Night School,” which has just released its first trailer.
Mr. Hart (who also co-wrote the script) plays a barbecue-grill salesman who yearns for a career as a stockbroker but learns he must complete his G.E.D. first. In comes Ms. Haddish as the no-nonsense teacher, who declares he’s “clinically dumb.”
I am so excited about this movie. It is truly a full circle moment for me. To be co-staring in a movie with @kevinhart4real just Proves to me that God is real. Back in 2005 Kevin and I were costars in a sketch Comedy Show at a comedy club in LA. I was homeless as hell, and I didn’t want anyone to know. Kevin noticed a bunch of things in my car and actually took the time to talk to me. He Gave me $300 and told me to get a hotel for a week. ( mind you that is impossible in Los Angeles y’all) He also told me to write out a list of Goals, get my shit together and start working toward those Goals. I did just that and over the years Kevin has always been the Big little Brother I never had. Thank you Kevin for always being willing to teach me and letting me know when I was making mistakes. You are a Comedy Angel. Now when I am In Forbes Magazine as one of the highest paid actresses in the world I will pay you that $300 Back. That is just one of the many things on my list of goals I have yet to Accomplish. So check out #nightschool y’all where I get to be The teacher.
“Night School” reunites the actress with Malcolm D. Lee, director of her 2017 breakout hit “Girls Trip.” The film comes from the prolific producer Will Packer, whose credits include “Girls Trip” as well as Mr. Hart’s “Ride Along” movies.
Among the familiar faces spotted in the teaser are “Saturday Night Live” alumni Taran Killam and Rob Riggle. Ms. Haddish can also be seen alongside another “S.N.L.” veteran, Tracy Morgan, in the TBS series “The Last O.G.”
“Night School” will be in theaters on Sept. 28.
